Sam and I were in New York City last week and since our preferred mode of navigating that city is by boat, believe it or not, we found ourselves gloriously going “back and forth” on the East River Ferry.

On one such evening, pulling into the dock at Wall Street, I was struck by the eternal beauty of my city. Seeing it again with new eyes, I recalled one of the favorite poems of my youth… Recuerdo by Edna St. Vincent-Millay.
